Dentistry for children &
Patients with special needs
Dr. Mark is a general dentist concentrating his practice on children ages 1-21 and patients with special needs of all ages. His goal is to create a caring dental home ensuring patients receive the best possible care. The focus on educating patients on proper dental care, early detection and prevention is our top priority at Krause Smiles.
We regularly extend office hours during scheduled holidays and try our best to accommodate your busy schedule when scheduling all appointments! We have found that children under the age of 6 and/or those requiring extensive dental work are more comfortable being seen the first half of the day allowing them a more positive experience. Additionally, certain orthodontic appointments requiring more time and attention are also scheduled in the morning.
Feel free to call or email anytime so that we may answer any questions you may have! We look forward to making Krause Smiles your child’s dental home.

During Dr. Mark’s undergrad at Salisbury University he trained under the tutelage of his father, becoming a graduate of SU in 1999. He encouraged his passion for dentistry and treating children of all ages. He then completed a two year General Practice Residency at the University of Rochester/Strong Memorial Hospital. During his second year, Dr. Mark focused his training treating both children and patients with special needs in a clinical, as well as a hospital setting. Ultimately, he received his dental degree from Howard University College of Dentistry.
Dr. Mark is a past president of the Eastern Shore Dental Society. He is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Maryland State Dental Association, The Salisbury Dental Study Club and the Gnathos Orthodontic Study Club. He continues to educate himself and keeps up to date with evidence-based dentistry on treatment of children by attending extensive courses throughout the year.
Dr. Mark and his wife, Kara, grew up locally and currently reside in Salisbury with their dog Wellington. Upon their return to the area in 2008, Dr. Mark initially practiced with Dr. Jerry.
